2019 swoof reads

Genres, time periods, settings… we love them all! SO, what kind of fictional experience are y’all in the mood for?! Not sure? Can’t decide? 2019 swoof reads are here for you! In 2017, swoof reads were a week-long celebration but we went to one post last year so check those out then read on for this year’s installment of the swoof files!

While reading a stack of books within the contemporary romance genre a few summers ago, I was surprised by the variety of emotions the stories evoked. Amish sweethearts, heart-pounding suspense, romantic comedies, and sappy Hallmark-esque plots are all lumped together within the same category.

Eight lists of four featured books for each categorized by swoof, my experience of the reads! Each of these books has been featured on Faithfully Bookish in 2019 so y’all can get the scoop by clicking the covers below for more about these lovely stories!
